Hi, I want to take my wife out on long weekend. I live in Sunnyvale, CA. I want to know the places i can be at and spend some romantic time with her.

During this, i would be looking for a studio too.

Does your wife like animals? Google "Safari West" - it's in or near Santa Rosa, they have jeep tours, lodging (or you can stay in S. Rosa and visit Schultz museum) and meals.

The safari and Santa Rosa are not what I consider to be romantic.

Do you like things a little kitschy? If so, why not try the Madonna Inn in San Luis Obispo? SLO has a pleasant downtown with creek and mission (perfect for a romantic stroll), plus Edna Valley wineries and the beach are nearby.

The small beach town of Cambria on the central coast exudes romance. I found a partial ocean view room at the Fog Catcher Inn for less than $180.00 a night. It's approx. 2 hours from Sunnyvale. Cambria has lovely, quaint shops, cozy romantic eateries and a beautiful coastline. Here's a website for Cambria along with lodging links where I found the deal at Fog Catcher:
